The Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans found themselves on the losing end of games each should have won last week and now face one another to start week 11 on NFL Network (not ESPN) tonight. The Titans will have to rely on a backup quarterback to find success when we watch Thursday Night Football online free live streaming NFL week 11 Indianapolis Colts vs Tennessee Titans game by following the links presented below.
The Titans are already in a hole with a 4-5 record and now must try to climb out of it without the services of their starting quarterback Jake Locker for the rest of the season. Backup Ryan Fitzpatrick is now called upon to lead his team into the playoffs, and must do so by defeating the AFC South-topping Colts that they haven’t beaten in their last four tries and have lost eight of the last nine to.
Tennessee hit rock bottom last week when the took on the winless Jaguars and lost 29-27, at home no less. It was the same game Locker went down with his season-ending foot injury, and one the team as a whole will have to try and forget. If the Titans can get hot starting tonight when we watch Thursday Night Football online free Colts vs Titans on NFL Network, they can quickly climb the standings. Currently they are two games back of the 6-3 Colts and will be playing them twice in the next three weeks.
Titans fans know the deck is stacked against them. Fitzpatrick started for Locker two games last month and only completed 54.3 percent of his passes. He lost both games, to the Seahawks and Chiefs, and only threw one touchdown pass versus four interceptions. However, Locker was much sharper when he replaced Locker last week with 264 yards passing and a pair of touchdown passes with no picks. The Titans defense lost that game to the Jaguars, not the offense.
Last week was an embarrassing loss for the Colts as they faced a Rams squad everyone expected them to beat and got blown out by a score of 38-8 at home. It was the Tavon Austin show as the rookie caught passes of 57 and 81 yards for touchdowns, and also returned a punt 98 yards for another score.
Colts quarterback Andrew Luck had by far and away his worst game of the season. He came into last Sunday with a total of three interceptions and double that number by the time the Rams game was complete. Luck did throw a touchdown pass and tallied 353 yards through the air, the most he’s thrown this season thus far, and sadly ran for all but one of the Colts total running yards in the game.
The running game, or lack thereof for the Colts has become a major concern. Trent Richardson hasn’t been getting it done since coming over in a trade, putting up two total yards on five attempts last week. The Titans run defense allows 114.9 rushing yards per game so expect Richardson to get more carries and the Titans to be on the lookout for that.
Indy’s defense has also become suspect by giving up at least 24 points to four of their past five opponents. They have been especially vulnerable to the long ball in giving up a whopping five touchdown passes over 30 yards in their past three games.
